2015 Volkswagen Amarok 2.0 TDI 132kW - Performance Tune and EGR disable

Nice Work, Thanks Auto Upgrades, the tune that has been programmed into my Beast is outstanding, it is very refined just like a normal VW tune, you barely realise it is diesel and don't even really hear the turbo, yet it delivers even more power and torque than the VW originally had (by 30HP and 65Nm) which is very nice!

The EGR system, particularly the EGR cooler in the Amarok was also so clogged up that at least the cooler needed to be replaced to get it to operate properly. The EGR cooler alone is about $1500, so I am certain I saved at least that by having it disabled in the process of tuning it. The EGR system on the Amarok seems to be very expensive to maintain long term. I would definitely recommend getting Auto Upgrades to sort it out for you too, they have done a fantastic job for me.

2016 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S 3.0 Turbo - Performance Tune

Lars proved incredibly knowledgeable when tuning my Porsche. He discussed the options in a pragmatic no-nonsense way, outlined what they all meant and then methodically worked towards getting the results.

And the results: much more urgency, better torque across the range and a better driving experience all round! Highly recommended.

2004 Mercedes Benz C55 AMG - Performance Tune

Thanks for making me love my car again Auto upgrades!!!

Just got back from Coromandel and the drive was great, it pulls harder off the line, midrange is where I felt the most increase. And to top it off I have over a quarter of a tank of gas left. I’d say I’ve saved 15-20 percent on fuel.

Thanks Lars, great job.! If your bored of your car get it tuned....

2008 BMW 335i - Performance Tune

Thanks for the great service!!!! I just got my car tuned in the morning and now I can feel the difference. I really appreciate the great service provided by Autoupgrades. Very professional and I could see the passion that they have for cars.

Highly recommended! If anyone is looking to tune their cars.. This is where you go!

Very happy customer.

2013 LEXUS IS350 FSPORT - Performance Tune

Lars is a very knowledgeable chap when it come to getting the most out of your car.

I can't begin to understand how it works but the upgrade has made a great difference to my car. A 2013 Lexus is350 fsport. It's a heavy car and I always found it sluggish, especially at low speed. The upgrade was worth the money. More power, more torque.

I'd recommend you get Lars around.

2006 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 - Performance Tune

I got in contact with Lars via the Porsche Club and we talked about my 2006 911 Carrera 4 and what options he had to make it a better and/or smoother drive. Lars suggested a performance tune which he could do at my work. The whole process was quick and he kept me well informed about days and times to do the tune.

After the tune he contacted me to ask if all was going OK. I’m very happy and although I don’t drive many K’s with my 997, on the first road trip I already noticed a difference in smoothness, the engine feels very happy with the efforts that have been put into it.

I can recommend to anyone Lars his knowledge, communication skills and most off all his performance tune!

2009 Hyundai i30 1.6 - Performance Tune

I had the privilege of having Lars performance tune my Hyundai i30. While it is not an expensive performance vehicle, the difference from before the tune to after is astonishing. The response is outstanding, and it goes to show that you can have any type of vehicle, and once Lars works his magic it becomes something quite different. I have already recommended Auto Upgrades to to a couple of mates. I will be back with my next car.

2007 BMW 335i - Performance Tune

Thank you auto upgrades! The car feels a lot more responsive on the low end after the tune and has improved the car from standard in every way. Highly recommend these guys to anyone wanting to get some more power out of their car. I have already noticed better gas milage.

The day I was going to get my car tuned I was going to have to postpone due to a cylinder misfire in my engine but Lars still told me to bring it over and helped me diagnose and fix the problem and now it's running better than ever which is service you don't get anywhere else.

Thank you Lars and auto upgrades great job!

2006 Subaru Legacy GT Spec B - Performance Tune

Lars did a outstanding job on my 2006 Subaru Legacy GT Spec B. From the beginning he showed he was very knowledgeable with what he does. He went above and beyond my expectations and made sure I was happy with every aspect of the tune. The car boosts much harder than before and the overall results with performance and fuel savings are awesome.

I will be recommending Autoupgrades to everyone and I can guarantee you are in safe hands with Lars.

2015 Volkswagen Amarok 2.0 TDI 132kW - Performance Tune and EGR disable

Thanks, auto upgrades. First of all, I had Lars take a reading from the ECU of the Amarok, which he rewrote the ECU with a performance tune, and deleted the EGR which was blocked (Blocked EGR Cooler).

Originally the Amarok had a diesel tuning box fitted which I thought was ok, auto upgrades refitted the original ECU connections to the injectors and MAF sensor of the Amarok and reprogrammed the ECU with a performance tune.

The tune which they programmed into the ECU has completely changed the running and performance of my truck, making it smoother, quieter and more responsive right through rev range. Highly recommend Auto Upgrades, Lars brings a wealth of knowledge which I trust.

2014 Hyundai iMax 2.5 CRDi 125kW - Economy Tune

I had my iMax tuned by AutoUpgrades, the job was done very quickly and great care was taken to make sure everything was done correctly. AutoUpgades was very good to deal with and the vehicle is now going extremely well, it is running more smoothly and is considerably more responsive. The fuel savings and increase in range are great.

Lars, the chap that we dealt with was very good and very nice, I will go back with other vehicles in future as the job AutoUpgrades did was great. They asked me a number of straightforward questions to establish what I wanted from tuning my vehicle and then delivered a tune that surpassed my expectations considerably.

Martin - Browns Bay, Auckland.

2005 Porsche 911 Carrera S - Performance Tune

I couldn't be happier with Lars from Auto Upgrades and the re-tuning of my 911, not only is the car smoother through the gears but I have noticed a considerable reduction in fuel use both around town and on the open road.

If you have thought about doing this to your vehicle, I would toughly recommend Lars and his outstanding service.
